Houston Tinplate Operators Society - Lionel, Trains, Layouts: Train Meets

Home Club Cars Donating Directions Email

Periodically, HTOS takes one of our portable layouts on the road. Depending on the timing of these events, the club may be closed during our normal operating hours (generally on Saturday). We attempt to give ample notification of such occurrences, both at the club and on this "meet' tab. We are sorry if we miss your visit when this happens.
Please visit us at our club display at the event!

We will usually have information at the club about upcoming events, ticket prices, flyers, and more. This page may not have the latest information, so please check with the event owner for any details. Most events are open to the public. Most shows charge an admission fee.

Ticketing and ticket pricing (if any) is done by the event holder, and not HTOS.
